Unless you've been to Mars and back the past couple of years, chances are that you've heard something about virtualization. It is one of the hottest trends in technology right now, yet market adoption is still in its early stages.
"Virtualization" is not however, a generic term that defines every type of technology. "Containers," "hypervisors," "paravirtualization" and "OS virtualization" are distinct approaches - each having its own application and strength.
Alec Istomin from SWSoft will covered the virtualization landscape and discusses technologies outside of VMware. In addition to Virtuozzo and Parallels from SWSoft, he also reviewed Sun containers, Microsoft's upcoming Viridian, and open source offerings including Xen, KVM and OpenVZ.
Alec also presented a demonstration of Virtuozzo/OpenVZ and opened the floor up to questions.
